Love this revolver, easy to shoot. Nice trigger, crisp single action. 38 special is very easy to shoot and handles 357 MAG with no problem though it have a kick to it. Easy to clean and easy to carry.

Solid revolver, easy to shoot. Nice trigger and crisp single action break. Handles 38's no problem, +p reasonably, and 357 gives a good kick - but not unwieldy. Change out the grips to a Hogue and the handling improves dramatically. Fit and finish is A-, not as polished as a Smith & Wesson - but that's what I expected anyway. Do I trust it as much as my S&W's? Sure do. The thing is built like a tank!

I wanted a quality revolver to add to my collection without breaking the bank and the Ruger SP101 was a great choice. I searched on many websites and the reviews on this weapon were very high. I used Buds layaway program and once it was paid it was at my FFL in two days! My 4th time dealing with Buds.com and everything went perfectly. As for the gun, it is built like a tank. I checked it over well before accepting the transfer and there were no issues. I do recommend replacing the grip as the factory one is small and cheap feeling. I added Hogue grips and loved the new feel. It took me a few times at the range to get a bead on the sights. I'm not used to the low profile sights on revolvers. Once I was dialed in the grouping was tight from 15 feet away. The weight of this gun easily absorbs the recoil. I love having the option of using .38 rounds at the range and .357 loaded in my nightstand. The 2 1/4 barrel makes this an easy concealed carry as well. I highly recommend this weapon and as always Bud's was about $100 cheaper than walk-in stores. Thank you Buds, can't wait for my next purchase.

This is a fine weapon- very accurate out of the box- It likes all weights and both 38 and 357 loads. The 158 grain loads (I tried 3 brands) all gave significant recoil- but were accurate at 1-15 yards. It liked the 38+p loads and recoil was not that noticeable. The fit and finish of the weapon was flawless and I liked the sight picture on the weapon and the grips seem to give good purchase and take up some of the recoil. As always (it seems to me) Ruger has made a superior product. If you need a concealable gun or a belt gun for field use this one would work well.

Nice gun. Compact and reliable. Heavy duty frame reduces recoil of powerful .357 round.
